I must confess… I have epically failed at not eating meat this Lent. In years past, it has not been an issue for me to give up meat. I really have no problem cooking and eating strictly vegetarian. This year was a little different, about a week and a half ago, I got really sick and was hospitalized. Not sure if you have ever spent anytime in a hospital but just so you know… the food sucks. When placing my “order” for meals I had a choice generally of chicken or chicken. I was not about to ask for a vegetarian plate for fear of being served rabbit pellets. So, I threw in the towel! I have been eating meat everyday since! There is always next year to pull through the 40 days. When getting released from the hospital I was starving. Not only was the food bad but the medication that I was given made my appetite increase significantly. Down the road from the hospital here in Gainesville, is a new burger franchise called BurgerFi. I made my husband take me there right away to check it out! I am usually not a huge burger fan and I tend to stay away from chain restaurants but this place was calling my name. Upon arrival I didn’t let the line out the door or the giant meathook light fixtures scare me away. I was going to eat a burger! Yes, they do have a vegetarian option on the menu and I bet its good! I ordered a double BurgerFi Cheeseburger with Cry and Fries (half order of fries and half of onion rings) covered with parmesan cheese and herbs. This burger place is awesome! The menu consists of every topping on a burger you can dream of and you can have it crafted just the way you want. Your burger is made from fresh all natural angus beef and served as a single, double or triple! They have a great selection of local craft beers and frozen custards and concretes that looked amazing. You can tell that they really are passionate about the food served, they even stamp the name BurgerFi into the yummy toasted buns. Every bite was delicious, juicy burger made with fresh ingredients. I will defiantly visit them again the next time I have a hankering for a burger and with over 60 locations across the country, you should too!
